    It's important because for some instances that the image are not able to load, the Alt text will be displayed to at least describe what's on the image that has failed to load.

    Google can't read images, so in order to tell Google what Image is all about we use Alt tag. It also help to rank images in Google when user search using that keyword.

    Alt tag are used to give alternate name to the image. We do this because Search engine bots can't read the image.
